Two Southwest Airlines Planes Clip Wings At Oakland International Airport

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say two commercial airliners clipped wing tips at the Oakland International Airport, but no injuries were reported.

KNTV reports Monday that a Southwest Airlines spokeswoman says a flight was headed to Orange County in Southern California Sunday night when its wing came into contact with the wing of another plane, while pushing back from the gate.

The other plane had arrived from Boise, Idaho earlier Sunday evening and was empty.

Both planes were taken out of service and will undergo a maintenance check. The incident remains under investigation.
